ECAM was formed in late 2013 when members of Get-Up who had worked together on the 2013 federal election identified their shared concern about climate change. Since then we have run a number of successful community forums (see previous events), have become incorporated, developed an extensive membership and ECAM News email list, work closely with other like-minded organisations and continue to strive to protect our precious earth.

Our Vision
A safe climate where the most dangerous impacts of global warming have been avoided, where our planet has been restored to pre-industrial health and where we and future generations live in a sustainable way.
